NHL:

In the NHL playoffs, Tampa Bay tripled up the Rangers 6-2 to tie the series at 1 game apiece. Tyler Johnson scored the first hat trick in Lightning playoff history, and Tampa Bay got its high-scoring offense in gear. Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan scored for the Rangers in the wide-open, penalty-filled matchup. Henrik Lundqvist gave up six on just 26 shots. The series now shifts to Florida.

The Philadelphia Flyers hired Dave Hakstol to replace head coach Craig Berube. Hakstol spent the last 11 seasons at North Dakota, where he compiled a 289-143-43 record. He just guided North Dakota to a 29-10-3 mark and a berth in the 2015 NCAA Frozen Four.

MLB:

In baseball, in the American League, Toronto bested the Angels 10-6, the White Sox topped Cleveland 2-1 in 10 innings, and it was Oakland over Houston 2-1. The Yankees and the Red Sox had the day off. The Yankees start a series against Washington and the Red Sox take on Texas.
